Early yesterday morning, there was a story on The Huffington Post, headlined with the caption that Netanyahu says that he will never share Jerusalem. Under the headline and Netanyahu's picture, the story went on to say that the Prime Minister's office has distanced itself from Ehud Barak's statement that Jerusalem should be divided among Jewish and Arab neighborhoods. The story did not contain the quote shown in the headline, or any statement from Netanyahu. I checked other sources, which emphasized that there was no comment from Netanyahu himself, about Barak's statement. Recently, I had researched if other readers find the Huffington Post anti-Israel; Apparently, many share my perception. Many of the anti-Israel articles are written by Jewish writers; This ploy is even used by Al Jazeera. Back to yesterday; Like my cousin Popeye, I could take it no more. I went back to Huffington to copy the article's address for a post on the deception. Although less than an hour later, the article had vanished: Unfortunately, the attitude remains.
